Knit Together

Let one who wants to move and convince others, first be convinced and moved themselves. If a person speaks with genuine earnestness the thoughts, the emotion and the actual condition of their own heart, others will listen because we all are knit together.

Toffee Goodness

first toffee ever

I made some this year and it turned out much better than last year's batches. Everyone said the toffee was more intense. I think it's because I cooked it to just a second before burning before pouring it out. I also used a fine 70% cocoa baking chocolate.

1 cup butter
1.5 cups sugar
3 Tbsp. light corn syrup
3 Tbsp. water
8 oz. chocolate chips or baking chocolate
1.5 cups raw almonds, chopped or sliced

Place a sauce pan over medium heat and add the butter, sugar, corn syrup and water. Stir consistently as the temperature of the mix raises. When the temperature reaches 305° F, remove from heat and pour onto a buttered 9" x 13" cookie tray; you may also line the tray with parchment paper instead of using butter. Spread the toffee evenly.

While the toffee is cooking, melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler. Once you have spread the toffee on the cookie sheet, spread the melted chocolate on the toffee. Sprinkle with the almonds and allow to cool.

Serves 8-10

    Heh...I noticed that the WW Points is left off of this entry. I'll just go ahead and figure it's approximately a billion. :P
